Srinagar | National Conference president Farooq Abdullah on Friday called on the residents of Jammu and Kashmir to trounce the “divisive agenda” of the BJP and its ideological parent, the Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) in the state in the upcoming Lok Sabha elections.

He said communal forces will try to vitiate the atmosphere but people must not get swayed by their “malicious propaganda”. “It is high time for the people of all the regions across the state to put up a strong front against the divisive agenda of the RSS BJP in the state. I am sure that the people of the state will give a befitting reply to the RSS and its ilk,” Abdullah said.

He was interacting with delegations from various parts of the valley at the NC headquarters here. The sitting Lok Sabha member from Srinagar said the general elections will provide an opportunity to people to secure a peaceful future for themselves.

“If the people don’t forge unity at this time, the posterity will never forgive us. It is for us to bequeath our coming generations a peaceful future,” Abdullah said.

“The forthcoming general elections afford the people an opportunity to secure themselves a peaceful future shorn of communal strife,” he added. Abdullah exuded confidence that people of Jammu and Kashmir will give a befitting reply to communal forces in the elections beginning April 11.

“These forces directly and indirectly will try to vitiate the atmosphere but we as a peace loving society should not allow ourselves to get swayed by their malicious propaganda,” he said.

“In the forthcoming elections, people of the state will give a befitting reply to such forces that are contriving to create wedge between various regions of the state,” he said. Polling in Jammu and Kashmir will be held in five phases on April 11, 18, 23, 29 and May 6. The results would be announced on May 23.

This is a blatant violation of model code of conduct, as in the advertisement she appeals to the public to use the water purified by the said water purifying machine.”

“Goons of Hitler use to beat and kill innocent people. Later, police use to file cases against the victims. Modiji is also doing the same,” said Kejriwal.

 

New Delhi| Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal on Saturday hit out at Prime Minister Narendra Modi, alleging he is “following” German dictator “Adolf Hitler’s tactics to grab power.”

Kejriwal launched the scathing attack on Modi while re-twitting a video that purportedly showed members of a Muslim family in Gurgaon’s Dhamaspur village being beaten up with sticks and rods by a group of men on Thursday.

Police had said a mob pelted stones at a house in Gurgaon and beat up family members, after a quarrel over a game of cricket on Holi. Later six persons were arrested for attempt to murder.

In a series of tweets, Kejriwal hit out at Prime Minister Modi.

“Goons of Hitler use to beat and kill innocent people. Later, police use to file cases against the victims. Modiji is also doing the same. He is following Hitler’s tactics to grab the power and his supporters are not able to see in which direction India is going,” Kejriwal said in a tweet.

The Delhi Chief Minister also re-tweeted the video of the incident and said, “Look at this video. In which holy book it is written that one should beat Muslims. Is it in Gita? Or in Ramayan? Or in Hanuman Chalisa? These people are not Hindus but goons in their disguise”.

Earlier, on Friday ACP, Gurgaon, Shamsher Singh had said that the incident occurred on Thursday evening at 5.00 pm when some of the victim family members, belonging to a minority community, were playing cricket outside their residence in Bhup Singh Nagar in Bhondsi area.

According to a victim, Shahid, six to seven drunk people asked his my family members not to play cricket on the street.

The attack was captured on a cellphone by one of the victims.

The family later alleged it was a planned attack by a group of people “backed” by a Hindutva group.

The police, however, did not confirm the allegation.

AAP senior leader Sanjay Singh also alleged the BJP is trying to turn India into Taliban and urged the opposition parties to be careful of the saffron party’s tactics of “polarising people ahead of the Lok Sabha elections.”
